Back to School

I'm happy to know that finally the government arrange my dutch course which to start on May 3. I had an appointment with them yesterday to test how far I know of the language. I thought at first it's going to be a 1 hour exam but then it was just an overview about what an inburgering course is all about and the staff asked me of what level I want to take either basic or intensive course. But the overall evaluation put me to an intensive course since they consider also that I have a new job on May. Intensive course also have two choices, three times a week on a day class which this is only good for those who have no work and two times a week on a night class for those who work during the day.
There are so many issues regarding inburgering course (which one to take,basic or intensive; or as requirements in getting a dutch passport; etc.) but whatever it is, the bottom line is to know the language. I'm crossing my fingers now hoping the City Hall (Geemente) will put me to a good direction.

Shoot Me! 9 of 52

My friends always challenge me to cook because they know I'm not good on it. Everytime we hang-out from one house to another friends' house, we usually set it on lunch time. That is the time we can eat our favorite Filipino foods. I always get on time so I can help in preparing the foods and they love to see me when I'm in the kitchen trying my best stirring even as simple as onions and garlic. But lately, I've been learning some basic cooking. I hope I can share it soon.

From Russia With Love

I was roaming around the city when someone handed me a leaflet, and was surprised that it's about the incoming opening of the famous attraction, the Keukenhof. And I get so excited to be back again and see this big, beautiful garden full of flowers specially tulips. Last years' theme was about Beijing Olympic, and this year  is "From Russia With Love". I can't wait to see this spectacular floral displays planted in so many varieties with its beautiful works of arts. It's a good place to hang out with family or with friends. It is scheduled to open on March 18 until May 16. So I better invite my friends now so we can spend one weekend in Keukenhof.

A Day With Your Family

It was a nice saturday spending the nice weather with my honey(my boyfriend) despite the incident that I almost broke my ankle after I jumped and lost my balance. We went to his family for his uncle's birthday, then visit his youngest brother and bringing some grocery for him, dropping by at his father's place to personally give the CD I burned for him, and lastly visited the grave of his mother. It has been 1 year and 3 months since his mom died but until now, the pain is still there. He is very emotional everytime we visit the grave of his mom but I can understand his difficulties of accepting it knowing he had a good relationship with his mom. Yet I'm thankful that I met her before she died. So it was obviously a busy day for us visiting one family to another and trying my best to communicate with them with my poor dutch but after all, I am more than happy having the same warm welcome I got from his family until now. I hope they will never change.

Shoot Me! 8 of 52

It's thursday again and it's time to share more photos. This time, i'm sharing a photos showing my support for my favorite football team, PSV. It's a team from Eindhoven(NL). I love watching football, also known as soccer since my brother is also a very good player in our town. Hopefully I can bring him soon to a live football as he visits here one of this days. The only thing, he hates my team.
